Sitting in that parking lot like it was 1967 all over again.  Well done!
Maybe when I get mine going we can meet halfway and drive the backroads between Houston and San Antonio!

There is a timer in the system, or should be, it may be missing or not timing out.  You may want to un-connect it (there is a connection close to the light) until you can get it corrected, as the bulb can melt the red lens if too close or on too long.

Not at my office, maybe someone else can comment or provide an image, if I remember correctly it is a long 2.5 inch rectangle module with two connection at 90 degrees to each other and next to each other at one end.

LOOKS Great - keep having fun!!

Look at this link, note the reply #6 by Bob G the image won't download as it does not have a title but notice the module in the image at the right.  Look for that towards the bottom of the instrument cluster above the steering column.

OK, got it - more than one way to skin a cat!!

See attached look to see if you have the thing the arrow is pointing to.  If you do it may be "bad" if there isn't one you need it, maybe its in the extra parts boxes??

Thanks JD!  Chug a Lug

Absolutely! We'll definitely have to meet up. Plus, I intend to make it to Houston a few times this year.

Watch out, Steve! I'm coming for you and your carryover!  Grin

Iím ready. And youíre just the kind of guy I need to hang out with. I still hesitate to take mine out if itís misting or the roads are wet. I need to get over that.

Congratulations on both the car and the "drive it if you got it" attitude." You are an inspiration to some of us older fuddy duddys.

I couldn't help but post a picture from yesterday's adventures.  Here's a shot I took while traveling the "Scenic Loop Road" in San Antonio.  There's an old rusty silo with the Texas Flag painted on it, and I had to stop (you can see the silo in the upper left corner).



Wow...what a car!  I'm already on my 3rd tank of gas, and I couldn't be more pleased.  I have a 1965 2+2 (not a Shelby, though I wish it were) and the difference in handling is night and day.  The 65 tends to get some wheel hop when you traverse certain bumps...not the 67.  The Shelby goes right through them like butter!

Speaking of butter - the transmission/shifter rebuild has been fantastic!  You can move through the gears so smoothly, it's almost unnerving in the best way possible.  Thanks again, Jim C.!

This car FAR exceeds my expectations, and I couldn't be happier...if you couldn't tell.  Grin

One quick story:  I took my wife and daughter to DQ for some ice cream on Saturday (at my wife's suggestion - God Bless her!  Grin).  While we were in line waiting for our special treats, a gentleman came up to me and asked if we owned the Shelby outside.  I said, yes; and he said, "That's #22!"  My jaw dropped!  How could he have known?  Well, long story short, he and his Dad own a body shop just up the road we had just driven down.  They are both Mustang/Shelby fans - in fact, the father has a 65 GT350, a BEAUTIFUL 69 Boss 302, and a 68 1/2 Cobra Jet.  They frequent this forum and they had been following this thread online.  As they saw my family and I pass, the son said, "That's gotta be #22!".  I ended up swinging by their shop later that day.  What great guys!  Super nice and a ton of fun to talk with.  I could have spent all day gabbing with them, but I realized that they were both still on the clock.

You NEVER know who you're going to run into, and boy is it fun to meet up with other enthusiasts.  Who would have thought 50 years ago that people would be able to follow, see pictures of, and relate about cars all via a "computer line".  

Way cool!  Chug a Lug

Ruben,

She looks awesome!  Here is the relay I think you need.  I just bought one on eBay, they show up NOS all the time.
